where they were taken after the liberation of mosul we've also been helping to find their other relatives in russia with some success to now among the five children are two sisters have deja and fatigue and what they went through is truly heartbreaking. i know. mom or dad each can. see. more than i could i said i've heard. dan you will.
see some saddam i have traveled to dagestan to see how those two little girls are now adapting to life back home tears of joy and relief very evident that the plane carrying five children from iraq landed in grozny but for the families waiting with stories and balloons there was also the question how to help these children some to some the melody see through witness the chorus of i still the loss of their parents and being left all alone to bug out over that. for their little sisters had vision and foot sima this is another thing of the past here is then your home and their family has a great to share their first day together with us the girls found the perfect remedy in their grandfather plenty of sweets and friends to play with. this is what these are and she's clearly the leader of the pack it seems the grueling experience
of football's own has made her even stronger for team zero six comfort in the arms of her ground who seems just too afraid to part with her again even for a moment it looks like the perfect family image a house filled with children's love to cries plenty of noise and fussing about it takes a while to realize what's missing. she saw everything but she says her parents are alive why would i tell her otherwise and yet even with all the love and care has to offer his granddaughters there are still many wounds left on here. and then as i think of the three days without food or water in a dusty dirty basement she told me when there were bombs they would go to basement and when she sees a helicopter now she's terrified and i tell her not to be afraid. i was opening an ice cream the other day and i have
a habit of opening the wrapper by popping it i did once and she jumped as if she'd had an explosion. who. knows. if the creation of adults but it's often children who pay the heaviest price while country it's even thousands of youngsters who remain trapped and lost in what appears to be the ruins of a self-proclaimed caliphate had leisure and it seems along with a few lucky ones who escaped well now hopefully learn how to be happy children and we've had several reports over the past couple of weeks about this so to get the full picture head for r.t. dot com that appeal still active though so if you recognize any of these youngsters or have any information about their families then do get in touch with us the e-mail address you can see at the bottom of your screen. the iraqi military says it's retaken the strategically important town of tal afar which is
one of the last islamic state strongholds in the country but the u.s. backed offensive has come at a heavy cost for civilians there. the operation started a week ago i still militants have dropped back from telephone but they still have hold in nearby territory my gastro reports from that. we're at the airport of telephone mia five kilometers from the city itself where the operation to liberate is underway this actually serves as a sort of said sold base serving the entire operation and soldiers from the front lines they come here to rest and to eat before heading back there exultant they say that the operation is almost over they've actually even got a message for isis. i have
a massive leave they are world now you have no place here will hunt you down wherever you are there jubilation however is a stark odds with what the people of talent have gone through what it was miserable we were under occupation imagine that and you know they turned the mosques into prisons there were thirty to forty people there we don't know what happened to them they demanded that molests recruited young people to join i sew and when they refused they locked them up there was no interest in no food nothing to eat we were almost dying there was no work and no man to sing my kidneys have almost failed it's been three years without medicine or anything tens of thousands of iraqi soldiers will mobilized for this operation the u.s. led coalition has brought to bear its full mice its people fleeing from talent and more than thirty thousand have escaped from the city escaped from the fighting they had to brave walking through the you put in deserts which is all there is here for
ten twenty hours to get to safety to fire. and water to find food medicine medical supplies and indeed treatment and from what we've heard many of them didn't make it but the commander of the operation he spoke to us and he said they expect to be done in another four days. everyone thought deliberation would be difficult and we would be two months the deliberations room is complete another interesting development that we've learned of is that on the twenty fifth of august four hundred families of isis fighters were let out of the city the details are murky and nobody knows exactly what happened but the commander of the operation and he previously was the chief of the mosul operation he told us that indeed this had happened he confirmed it but again without details and what about the four hundred families that escaped that escaped. did you fail to catch them what did you let
them do for humanitarian reasons. we have a system we hand of all the refugees to the iraqi government and they handle them. still the battle in telephone is far from over from what the soldiers tell us most of the civilians have managed to get out and managed to flee nevertheless there are still thousands of people trapped in a shrinking area where isis still holds sway and where they still haven't been defeated and they have a terrifying few days ahead of them the operation bad striking similarities with the recent campaign in nearby mosul which left thousands dead the two cities were strongholds besieged by u.s. back to iraqi forces thousands of civilians were trapped inside both telephone and most of the constant bombardment many of those who tried to flee were killed in the crossfire and those who remained quickly ran out of basic supplies. and the
operations have been moving forward of course we think that there are a lot of others a bit in the farm bill that would of course be part of hardly any consequence what the move from our very own beloved food water is that the people want to be able. to lean on you know then. none of that was being shot. on monday donald trump announced his new war strategy for afghanistan the main idea is that u.s. troops will be staying on in the country the new plan by the president's provides no time frame for a withdrawal now although his administration hinted at a boost in numbers and troops he chose to keep the exact numbers secret he also wants nato allies to throw more troops and money into the pot too it's a stark departure from trump's views before he became president. we will also expand authority for american armed forces to target the terrorist and criminal
networks afghanistan is a total and complete disaster let's get with it get out of afghanistan and the past trump was highly dismissive of president obama's approach to afghanistan trump called for a speedy withdrawal and condemned the loss of american lives and money wasted we also locals in afghanistan for their views. how did you go you couldn't hear american and afghan forces carry out operations at night sometimes their intelligence reports are inaccurate civilians including women and children get killed. and there was a doctor is a horse sulu is hit by a drone strike and another man was on his way home when he was killed when. the power of the u.s. operation into the house and so schoolboy they shot him dead later they said they had killed a taliban finds before they left they blew up the entire building the u.s. strategy for afghanistan comes amid a shakeup in donald trump's in a circle and those kind of morbid reports the president's foreign policy decisions
with his new team may surprise his supporters. so you want to be an american president what gets you aleck to it is it pledges of more wars or the opposite we've been moving from one reckless intervention to another cut in libya syria iraq iran this destructive cycle bad decisions we cannot be the policeman of the world whole show that promises a peace were key for trump voters more than half of americans said they would prefer that the next president curb u.s. involvement in military conflicts and trump isn't the only president to have gotten the job writing hopes of peace even as we confront a vicious adversary that abides by no rules i believe the united states of america must remain a standard bearer in the conduct of war. that is what makes us different from those whom we fight you got it they even gave obama the nobel peace prize preemptively
but by the time he left office he had droned bombed and intervened even more than his predecessor many hoped that the donald would make a difference however it looks like he may be set on a similar track with words of love being replaced by war and i don't know ordered a targeted new jersey strike or if you can see who we are sending an armada very powerful we have submarines very powerful we have many options for venezuela including a possible military option north korea best not make it work threats to the united states. they will be met with fire and fury. like the world has never see but thinking out of policy is pretty far from a one man job here are some of the people who help think out and develop trump strategy you know the one that got him elected well they're all gone except for one
meanwhile the white house routinely invites people who have a pretty clear interest for wars to go on people voted for trump because they knew hillary clinton was a warmonger and that she had wanted to destabilize the middle east as she did with libya the people in charge of the white house are now jared questionnaire trump gary gary cohen h.r. mcmaster paul douceur all very pro-war people and those are closest advisors i think that most people who support trump hope they keep to his promises but they do recognize that all of his closest advisors are now opposed to the agenda that got trampled elected yes the new team trump isn't exactly made up of peace mongers and it's pretty far from the vision that americans voted for caleb oppen r.t. new york we also former u.s. congressman ron paul about trump's comes to newton's.
it changes the words and makes it sound like the world will come apart if we don't continue to be the world's policeman he says he's not into nation building but there was a pretense anyway how many nations that we can really build or improve we've torn nations apart so he is seen as a flip flopper which i think politically is a bad position to be. going to be a perpetual war nobody knows exactly who the enemy is and nobody will know when it is ended i think trump has been maybe a little bit more upfront that his goal isn't to get done in six months or a year it looks like he's planning to be there for the long term. he wants to increase the troop levels mean he will but we don't know exactly and we who are on the pro peace side think that he should do very very little without the consent of the congress and yet it sounds to me like even he wants to give away
some of his authority and say well the generals are in charge the generals in charge let them make all the decisions a massive explosion and fire at an arm's depth in azerbaijan blocks the country's main highway to russia it's among all stories still ahead. that's. what politicians do something to. put themselves on the line they get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president. wanted. to go right to be close this is like them before three in the morning can't be good . i'm interested always in the waters in the. city.
hall the feeling of. every the world should experience. and you'll get it on the you will. according to just. come along. summarized in the past hour that the number of deaths from the recent terror attacks in spain has risen to sixteen a german woman who was injured in last rambus in barcelona has since died of her injuries in hospital on saturday night hough a million people took part in an anti terrorist march in the city the crowds carried bad as chanting we are not afraid walking alongside them was king for the
but the major focus of the past week has been the town of repulsion where the terrorist cell was believed to have been radicalized peter all of a travelled that and talked to people who knew the suspects. radicalizing force they were radicalized by a moroccan born police now believe the ripple was at the center of the plot. this small spanish town took away in the foothills of the pyrenees is hardly what you think of as a hotbed of islamic terrorism but it was here in the fall that the terrorist cell which attacked barcelona recruited were indoctrinated and radicalized eventually going on to carry out their deadly mission. was. but it was here that the terrorists that rammed his truck
into crowds of people and boss alone lived. the twenty two year old moroccan was gunned down on monday following eight four day manhunt by authorities. who our. local people here say they can't believe he lived within that community. they play football together on the beach nearby with other kids from the neighborhood they were brought up here since they were little but. of course if. they were behind what happened around here we can believe it the seem to be very nice people who will be. seen by the whole roaming around but it's just the how we have to salute in a whole slew of things that the sale melted into whole society attending the local
high school and being a fixture on local football fields so how did say seemingly quiet group of quiet teenage is on a quiet town and is part of a jihad to sell the answers to that many are looking towards the mosque that they attended it's here that they're understood to have attended prayers led by our society who's been accused of being the. behind the terrorist cell the authorities pointed the finger at him and now that's being reiterated by some of those accused of being part of the. have appeared in court but who is. what do we know about the. moroccan national we know that he had a criminal past in front back in twenty ten he was sent to prison here in spain for his part in a drug smuggling operation and it's in jail where he's understood to have become radicalized in fact he's believed to have spent time with those who plotted and
carried out the madrid bombings we also know that back in twenty sixteen he spent time in belgium around the time of the bombings on the metro the airports in brussels. he is believed to have been killed it was announced by authorities that his d.n.a. was found at the site of a bomb making factory did exploded in at the moment the authorities are writing bad off as that his own potential weapons of death course him out in the end. as the investigation continues arrests continue to be made including that of the owner of an internet cafe that suspected members of the terrorist cell and no into a frequent it begs the question just how many small communities like this could
potentially be harboring fatal terrorist cells peter all of. these are the twelve suspected members of the terrorist cell that came from all of believed to be from the moroccan community and all are of similar age the eldest was twenty two the youngest was just seventeen radicalized teenagers are not a new phenomenon either last year a sixteen year old syrian boy was arrested on suspicion of plotting a bomb attack in the german city of cologne and then in paris a fifteen year old boy was arrested on suspicion of planning an attack also we talked to a lawyer specializing in religious terrorism who says europe's got used to living with terror and security should be tightened across the continent. some of the leaders and other european countries have said that we just need to quote unquote get used to the fact that this is part of our lives and it's very sad to see that in a continent such as europe which has had so many freedoms has such diversity of different people and has allowed those freedoms it is sad to see that people are now no longer surprised again this is a lot of backtracking they're having
a go against major national you are european union policies which state that you know they shouldn't do much they should look at religion they should look at other things and they shorten the shouldn't police the streets. a movement to take down statues of confederate heritage and other controversial historical figures has gained momentum in the u.s. it all started to coast in charlottesville virginia violence broke out there two weeks ago when a rally in support of the monument of a confederate general was met with a counter protest since then several monuments have be destroyed or covered up in other parts of the country although sometimes the targets are questionable. i don't care if the george washington or thomas jefferson statue or robert is that
this is a perfect example of what kind of a lunacy our country is going through connally's rice said it beautifully these are my these this is our history right and what the left is engaging is a storable revisionism this is the reality for better or for worse of what the us it was in its most of our founding fathers were slave owners right there are participating in the evil of slavery so examine we have tear them down so we take washington off the one dollar bill it's a teachable moment when you walk in with your kids the south and you see a mine at the jefferson davis or whoever it might be it's a moment to sit with your child to reflect a what was and how we moved from it i think we're heading to a very dark place and it scares me quite
a bit the war on statues doesn't end in the u.s. monuments to australia's colonial past including a dot you have captain cook in sydney also drawn people's rough critics say it ignores tens of thousands of years of indigenous history and britons not escape the trend either a journalist for a major u.k. newspapers calling for nelson's column in london to be toppled she described the victorian naval commander as a white supremacist and a defender of slavery we went to trafalgar square to ask visitors there whether the admiral should be given his marching orders on. there's been an argument meade saying that in this day and age you would be perceived as a white supremacist. rubbish everybody as you see everybody seems to enjoy now i don't think it should be don't think it's going to do any harm trying to get rid of you know no one well you can get rid of is that. tends to show some of that the oh fun stuff that you can get rid of. a massive explosion and fire at a gnome storage facility has forced all of the caucasus country of azerbaijan to
evacuate people from nearby residential areas and there are reports suggest the explosion was caused by a fire inside the depo which is seventy five kilometers northeast of the capital at least six people have been injured and several shells blown up by the blaze of hit houses in the area a highway that links the as every capital with russia as being closed. that's the news for now i'll be back with you next week li in just over half an hour to see the. coin saul's for trust it's a mathematical formula that solves for trust think about all the institutions in your life that require trust you trust people on the road are going to be not crashing into you you trust that the doctor is professional and you trust the hospital is working in a trust third parties all day long bitcoin is the first trust international currency that doesn't require trust it just requires consensus to buy into every
ten minutes the protocol and why would you not be buying into this protocol if you're getting fabulously wealthy or watching central banks collapse i like about it i mean wealth comes and goes but watching central banks crawl into their desk and pee themselves and try that's what i like. with this manufactured sentenced to the public will. when the ruling close. says protect themselves. in the final merry go round you don't one percent. we can all middle of the room six. million real need.
stanton glantz only learned of this case through the documents we showed him. the approaches that they used to attack the person doing the research on linking cured meats with cancer were the standard things they do one is to go through her work with a fine tooth comb and find every little thing they could possibly complain about and because the issues tend to be fairly technical you know if you're a politician or if you're a reporter or english or a highly specialized reporter all you hear is well this person said there was something bad and this other person said that they didn't know what they were talking about and some of these efforts to go after the scientists and to discredit the scientists.
